    Default Hello all

    Hi, I'm an INTP who got bored of the single type forums and decided I'd see what this concept of 'diversity' is all about and why people would espouse such ideals.

    That's my bit I guess. I'll see you around!

    Diversity is overrated. The concept of diversity is fairly circular, no matter where you are on the circle, you're always just a dot and never closer or further away from the center.

    But traversing a circle is better than traversing a line. You'll never get lost.

    Thanks, and I agree!

    I agree that diversity for the sake of diversity is a pointless exercise, but I like to think of the diversity of perceptions and their resulting thoughts in a slightly different way that fits with my view of the world and allows me to better operate in the world, and I like to explain it this way, just for my own appreciation of metaphors :
    If you focus your mind on a single wave or flow in a single expanse of ocean, you're only aware of this single entity's qualities. However, if you're able to oversee a multitude of waves in an aggregate of all the water of the oceans, then you see the procession of currents and are better able to assemble the big picture.
    That's why I'm interested in diversity.

    Being an INT, it's one of my weaker functions, but I think I've developed it to a certain extent. If you provoke it even slightly or provide an opportunity for its action, it will come, and usually not know when to shush itself, even to its own embarrassment. I suppose I've just got to live with it.

    I also like diversity. Is it because you want to lord over the lesser types too? Alas its the INTPs burden.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.
